Special To The Jewish Week

South by Southwest (SXSW) is in perpetual beta mode. Experimentation is at the core of the festival’s DNA. Eighty-five thousand people from the worlds of music, film and interactive media have been converging in Austin in mid-March for 30 years. SXSW is an example of the whole being greater than the sum of the parts, as each participant makes a unique contribution to the experience. This year’s attendees ranged from President Obama and the first lady to film director J.J. Abrams, chef-adventurer Anthony Bourdain and former Wikimedia Foundation exec Lila Tretikov.

South by Southwest, an annual music and film festival in Austin, Texas, has been around since 1987 yet has managed to maintain its geeky hipster street cred, attracting more than 2,000 artists and 30,000 of the young folk who love them, at its run last week.
